I’m like most girls who have a number of bags in their wardrobe but still can’t
resist adding one more to it. Why do we find bags so desirable?
It's partly because they've become a unique outward statement of a woman's
status, fashion savvy and earning power – and the rising popularity of handbags
over the past 100 years has followed the increasing social independence of
their owners. Although a bag is a basic accessory that one needs, but it is also
an element that can add so much to your outfit.
I wish I could tell you exactly what perfect handbags and fashion purses look
like. If only I can say that it should be a certain shape, a certain size and a
certain colour for it to be ideal. There are so many types of bags to choose
from. Fashion is way more fast forward in recent times.
On my recent trip to London, I couldn’t help but notice the eye-catching bags
that were being showcased at various stores. One particular shape that caught
my attention was that of the “Bucket bag”.
Every notable designer had their own unique twist to the bucket bag. It’s an
absolute staple in any handbag wardrobe: both roomy enough to carry
abundant ephemera and complete with a practical strap facilitating hands-free
living. One was spoilt for choice!
Chanel had a beautiful python leather bucket bag, Chloe with a practical cross
body with a canvas strap, Fendi too had many variations, some with gorgeous
pearls embellished at the bottom of the bag.
One designer that caught my attention with this style of bag was “Sara
Battaglia”. With its multi-coloured super chic bags that could be dressed up or
down with a changeable strap depending on the occasion. Anna del Russo
carried hers with a Fendi Strap and made it her own.
Some of the designers that one should keep an eye out for their statement
bags in myriad shapes and sizes are Simone Rocha, Jeremy Scott, Mark Cross,
Ermanno Scervino and Thom Browne to name to few. They are comfortable,
modern and extremely versatile.
If you’re looking to add a statement element to your casual outfits, bucket
bags would go exceedingly well with it. Whatever you put on, your ensemble
can't be completed if you lack the stylish essentials. Handbags, watches, belts,
sunglasses, along with other such gorgeous products rule the closet of every
lady. These style add-ons help ladies reflect their design and social status. As a
general rule, “The more unique the better”.
